Amaze-balls! It got up to 25C here this afternoon and I enjoyed as much of the sun as I possibly could.
I kicked off with a training run which, in hindsight, wasn’t a superb idea. While I’ve previously trained in as much as 28C and direct sunlight in Spain, I was well-hydrated and ran with a camel pack.
This morning, I was fuelled by coffee and didn’t bring any water with me. Still, I managed a very fun 14.5km in the sun and came home feeling great. I could have gone farther but was getting very, very hungry.
It’s always interesting running through London on a Sunday. I left Canary Wharf and headed up to Old Street and then back down to Tower Bridge via the City. Th financial district is a ghost town on a Sunday morning. Just perfect for running without having to stop and start and avoid tourists.
This afternoon, after a post-run meal of spinach omelette and spicy refried beans, we headed out for a walk in the sun. We eventually found a seat outside a local bar and enjoyed about 45mins in the sun before it got a little too hot for @FrankDJS.
I honestly think I’d be a significantly happier and more relaxed person if I lived somewhere with weather like this all the time. But seeing as I don’t, I have to take advantage of it while I can!
And looking at the weather forecast for the coming week, I’m glad I did.
